You asked:
"Messrs. Keith KILLEBREW and Jess CARLTON are now wielding
the yardstick at McELWRATH'S."
means?? I wonder if McElwrath's was a store? Daisy Pearl McElwrath
was my great-grandmother.

T. A. McElwrath was a dry goods store in Dresden, on the west side of
courthouse square, according to their advertisements. There is usually
a large
ad of about a fourth of a page in the Enterprise every week. The one for
24, 1903 advertises "New Spring Goods".
Named items are rugs, curtains, shades, fixtures, hats for men, boys
and children in fur and straw, shoes and slippers, clothing, and dry
Dry goods listed are dress goods, white goods, wash goods, skirt goods,
silks, trimmings, lace, embroideries, ribbons, hosiery and underwear.
